Low-key (but luxe) linen looks

Category: fashion and beauty

Although it’s a fabric that has been around for centuries – since the ancient Egyptian time – it’s hard to imagine anything else overtaking linen’s title as the most perfect summer trend. The breezy, lightweight textile has been reimagined throughout the years, but has finally made its way from the bedroom to the wardrobes of modern-day fashion lovers.

Universally flattering and versatile in its design, linen can be worn in an abundance of ways, and Stockland Merrylands is here to show you just how. Get ready for your best summer fashion looks yet – you’ll find everything here, and more, lining the stores at your local Stockland Shopping Centre.

The summer suit: Create a polished look with a chic linen two-piece

Whether you want something ideal for your 9–5 in the big city, or for a Sunday brunch date with the girls, the versatility of a linen suit allows you to have it all. The best part about this two-piece is that you can make it as pulled-together or as laidback as you desire. You can never go wrong with beige and cream hues – these classic designs will still look chic for the many seasons to come. Pair a linen blazer and trouser set with a nude low heel and minimalistic gold jewellery for an elevated office outfit. And for a more laidback, weekend look, opt for linen shorts and a structured slide-sandal.

Elevate your night out with a stylish linen crop top and trouser duo

If you’re looking for something different to the typical tried and true linen dress for a night out, a pair of black linen trousers will instantly make you look (and feel) expensive. What’s great about them is that you can literally pair them with any colour, shape, and fabric – like a linen crop top with a flattering sweetheart neckline. As for the accessories, we’re not seeing the chocolate brown trend stepping down anytime soon.

Mix and match pieces in this colour to tie your whole look together – a textured bag and strappy sandal will do the trick. And don’t forget your gold jewellery! You don’t need us to tell you that these pieces are key to making an outfit look luxe.
